Among other regional antiviral drugs markets, Asia Pacific, followed by the Middle East and Africa, is anticipated to present most promising opportunities for the growth of this market. The key factors attributed for this are the soaring prevalence of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, high-paced spreading of various infectious viral diseases, such as influenza, and the increasing preference for better healthcare facilities. The rising penetration of drugs for novel viral infections, such as Ebola and Zika, together with improved as well as affordable second version drugs, is anticipated to drive both the markets, i.e., Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa, over the forthcoming years.
